  • Description

    The three members of the Japanese Red Army who had been holding hostages at the French Embassy in The Hague for five days, yesterday (Wednesday), surrendered themselves to Palestinian guerilla, on their arrival at Damascus airport. Four hours of tense negotiations between the Red Army members and officials at Damascus airport preceded the surrender. The Japanese were seen being greeted by members of an unidentified Palestinian guerilla group after the successful conclusion of the negotiations. The volunteer crew of the Boeing, which took the Japanese from Holland to Syria, were reported to be flying back to France along with the 300,000 dollar ransom which is being returned to the Dutch Government.
